Taylor Swift Releases Newest Single About an Ex-Boyfriend, And apparently they are never, ever, EVER getting back together

Shannon Livewell

There is not one teenage girl out there who cannot play a Taylor Swift song and feel as though she is singing about their life.

Taylor writes from personal experience, and being a young female in today’s world, most of what she writes about is heartbreak.

One thing is for sure; you never want to get on Taylor Swift’s bad side, or you can guarantee there will be a song written about you within the next year. Every man that has done Taylor wrong has been sure to pay, and most of her songs have a hidden message regarding whom they were written about.

Taylor’s new single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” is already making more sales than initially thought. The song follows her never-ending theme of making the men in her life wish they never left her behind.

The song tells the story of a man who hurt Taylor multiple times, and suddenly he wants her back in his life. She says how she gave him chance after chance, but finally has to put her foot down and let him know that they are never getting back together.

Industry charts suggest that the new single will have sold more than 500,000 copies by the end of its tracking week on Aug. 19, 2012.

If the song surpasses 448,000 copies sold, it will earn the largest debut for a digital single by a woman, ever.

The song should make a dramatic jump towards the top of next week’s Hot 100 after logging a full first week of sales and airplay.

Though Taylor has seemed to have left her country roots for this track, it is easy to see that this is perhaps the most comical pop single on the charts today. The beat of, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” is perhaps one of the catchiest songs that Taylor has ever written.

The song tells a typical story of any teenage girl, and the man who lost them but conveniently wants them back. As a teenage girl, who has gone through her fair share of break-ups, I can definitely say that this is the kind of song you want to sing along to in the car on your way home from running into your ex at the local supermarket.

If you were a loyal fan of Taylor’s country roots, then you probably will be a bit disappointed with this new-found sound. The track almost verges on a style comparable to “Make My Own Sunshine,” by Alyssa Bongura, an Australian singer and songwriter.

Comparing the chorus of Taylor’s new song to the opening of Bongura’s single, one will see they are practically the same exact melody.

Either way, I would say that this is a track that everyone should have on their iPods, especially high school and college girls who want to forget about their exes and let them know they have moved on by singing and dancing alone in their rooms.
